The roasting of Mr. Pig

This year I didn’t manage to attend Ignat traditions but I’, publishing a few old but not published before pictures. They deserved publishing from the first time, but due to their violence I was a bit skeptical.

Pork and saukeraut

After in previous posts I may have engrossed some with explicit pictures from traditional pig slaughtering>, is probably the time to show some pleasant-looking pork based food. From Caru’ cu bere in Bucharest (the same place I enjoyed papanași a while ago), here’s what they call, in the English language menu “Romanian pork shank served with pan fried sauerkraut, polenta, horseradish and chili pepper” (ro: ciolan de porc cu varză călită, mămăligă, hrean și ardei iute). This is a serving for two, the dish is large enough.

Aint’ no jamon

Friends who visited Spain keep telling me about jamón, the local speciality. I wasn’t there yet, can’t tell if it is up to its reputation, I can only show you some regular Romanian smoked ham. Not bad.

This is a less known way to cook sarmale: get a pumpkin and take out the seeds. Fill the interior with uncooked sarmale and whatever else is needed: tomatoes, peppers, smoked bacon, herbs.

Saramura: making of

Saramură is a traditional Romanian dish, made most of the time from fish. You start by grilling the fish (mullet in this case)

Then put the meat in a salty sauce (brine) with garlic, hot peppers and vegetables. Served with mămăligă.

Fishmongers

That day it was a holiday and the tradition it was to eat fish (on top of that, fish is a Bengali speciality), so the streets of the Ukhra village were full with fish vendors. They were happy so see me, a white man, something unusual there and very eager to get photographed.

Cîrnați de Pleșcoi

Shooting at the volcanoes is nice and exciting, but it won’t keep the hunger away. Travelling trough beautiful landscapes is also nice and exciting, but it also won’t keep the hunger away. You need real food for that. And as the volcanoes are located in the Buzău county, what is more appropriate than Pleșcoi sausages (cîrnați de Pleșcoi)? And plenty of them, eat until you can’t eat more and then eat some more 😀
